And the statement further clarified that Rachel had broken off with him because she did not want to break his married life. With daily revelations about affairs, David's marriage seemed to end in agony, with divorce being seen as the logical conclusion.

The couple made a rare red carpet appearance on 15 April at the Academy of Country Music Awards 2018. Whats more, the loving husband posted a photo of him and his wife on Instagram calling Jaime his queen and wished her a 'Happy Mother's Day.' 

Not just that David seems to have been a responsible father. He is with his kids on their big days and never misses an occasion to show his love towards his kids, whether that be celebrating his son's birthday or his daughter's ice hockey matches.

Seems like the actor has learned his lessons from his past exertions and is much more of a family man these days, a responsible father and a loving husband.
